Bergey Boys Blazing BBQ of Canton received top honors at a charity BBQ event in Onalaska, Wis., on June 25, 2016. The team’s pulled pork was awarded first place in the People’s Choice Contest at the Rotary Rock-n-Ribs BBQ Competition. The Bergey team - made up of father Don and three sons: Brock, Brandon and Brady - were one of 27 BBQ teams raising money for non-profit organizations.

On July 18, the organizer and chairperson of the contest, Laurie Tweten, presented the Bergey’s nearly $1,400 in prize winnings to the Canton Volunteer Fire Department. Chief Randy Gossman and Assistant Chief Jim Davis accepted the donation. Bergey Boys Blazing BBQ chose to collect funds for their hometown fire department as a way to honor Don’s brother, Dennis, who passed away unexpectedly last August. Dennis served 22 years as a proud member of the Canton Fire Department.

Rotary Rock-n-Ribs is a joint effort of the La Crosse Valley View Rotary Club and the Holmen Area Rotary Club, with matching funds for the non-profit beneficiaries provided by Verve Credit Union.

I wander out to the garden, wondering what’s for dinner tonight. The peas are fattening up nicely, tucked in their pods, so I pick a mess of them. Some lettuce still looks good, so I slice off a deep green clump of romaine, and a handful of chives .....
